I created this set of five seaside/summer themed illustrations to be printed on promotional postcards. The intention was to provide my agents with promo material to give to potential clients (under my illustrator alias 'Meilo').

In the end they were never used as soon after I printed them I took on a full time design role. They serve as a constant (often ignored) reminder that I should make time to illustrate more! Whilst I get to illustrate quite often for infographics and websites I rarely take the time to illustrate just for fun.

The five illustrations were titled GreenSleeves (the ice cream van playing distorted music), HappyHarry (in honour of the dodgy and NEVER happy ice cream salesmen 'living the dream'), IceScream (in memory of all those dropped ice creams), IceCycle (because bikes are cool and one that sells ice cream is even 'cooler'...) and the MeltKing - a strangely regal melting ice cream character.
